February 27

 


The start of another destashing session... It's surprising how quickly new projects crowd out the old. So often I think I'll work a little more on a piece, maybe try to develop the color more, but the day is already filled with other work, so I put it away for "later". Later doesn't come.  The sensiible thing is to gather up some of these and list them for sale as they are, spots, speckles, and all.


 


Groups of indigo dyed napkkins. Most have a little dyeing mistake, but the I think the fabrics are still lovely.

 Morning moon setting in the west on February 12.


 


 Later that day there was snow. I went out with the camera and a cup of tea and found this handsome guy waiting on the neighbor's back porch.



Maybe there'll be more snow this evening.


 


 Patience.


 

End of a beautiful year

Christmas Eve - Eve

 


 Such a busy time indoors and still so lovely outdoors!

This is one of my favorite days of the year.

 The final pear. I wonder why this one hasnt fallen yet.

The plants had to come in early this year. They don't love being indoors, but at least they're alive.


 


Mikweed pods have burst open.

November

Snow began to fall on Halloween morning. 


The leaves have started falling , creating a lovely carpet under the serviceberry. (Never mind the bits of trash....:)


In just one day the world seems to change!


 

October

 


The sweet Service-berry is beginning to glow. In every season it is a beauty.


 


I desided to take a little break from dyeing silk and linen. The cooler days made me turn to wool for spinning and crocheting. It's hard to decide what to make - scarves, hats, or should I dye enough to crochet a blanket....? I've said it for years, but one of these days, I'm going to try felting.


 


This rose reminds me of the brick-red madder shade.


 

September morning glories


These morning glories began blooming in earnest a few weeks ago. They always take a long time to get started, but are truly worth the wait! 


Late September

 


Lakr Michigan is only about 20 minutes away from home, but for some strange reason, I hadn't visited it in years.


The air was baking hot, and the water was deliciously cool.



It helps to change the routine once in a while.



 Back to work, inspired by the lake.
